Union hires Nolan Harrison
He currently is serving his second three-year term on the NFLPA former players board of directors, is chairman of the health committee, and has served as president of the Phoenix chapter of the NFL Former Players Association.
“To be selected by executive director DeMaurice Smith to this important role and to assist him, all players and staff, in achieving his vision for the NFLPA is a challenge that I relish and I’m looking forward to taking on,” Harrison said.
“He has been a consistent leader and fighter for players’ rights and benefits when he was an active player, and now as a former player,” Owens said. “In addition, he’s a good listener and does not shy away from asking the tough question. He has a clear understanding of the history and continuing struggle of the players.”
